Garden Teds ….. An Arbour Tale
An Arbour Tale
Gardening Teds had heard that there was a frog in Tiny Pond. A group of Teds went down to Gertie’s Garden and sat on the bench surrounded by fragrant Jasmine blossoms.
Hedgeley went straight over to Tiny Pond to see the frog.
Sure enough he spotted it between a water weed and an old pot.
Whilst Barty and Samuel sat and sunbathed on the bench with Reynard, …..
… Hedgeley and Foxley discussed garden matters, and enjoyed the sunshine too.
They had taken some sun hats down into the Garden with them.
Even Foxley put one on for a while, but not for long because it felt uncomfortable over his ears!
Reynard got Tails to try on a hat …..
And for a little while, the Gardening Teds enjoyed relaxing in the sun.
It did not last long of course. The mischievous Green Teds wanted to climb. It was Tails who climbed up the stem of the Jasmine creeper first!
Topsy was fidgety too. He leaned precariously over the arm of the bench to talk to Samuel down below him.
He saw Reynard, sunbathing on the bench amongst the sun hats …..
….. and said, “Coo-coo!” to Samuel, sitting surrounded by fallen Jasmine blossoms.
Tails was loving it, perched up in the Jasmine branches.”It’s great up here!” he yelled.
Topsy immediately wanted to sit up there too and went over to the Jasmine branch as Tails jumped off. Topsy clambered down the branch to the foot of the Jasmine.
It was dark and damp down in the pot behind the bench, and Topsy didn’t like it very much.
Topsy was also finding it difficult to climb back up. The other Teds leaned over anxiously.
Barty saved the day by flying the magic Carpet, MC1, over the edge to rescue Topsy.
Topsy was saved! Hurrah!
Everyone heaved a sigh of relief. Bravo Barty!
After that adventure, they had a restful and lovely afternoon sitting in the garden, smelling the Jasmine and listening to birds, whilst they discussed garden plans for their Pads Garden.
On the way back to the Pads, as Reynard was checking out some cuttings …..
… Barty and Twinkle stopped to admire the new Garden Windmill.
Twinkle and Barty watched the Windmill for a long time.
It was so pretty as it whirled around and its colours blurred into a rainbow.
It had been a very satisfactory afternoon for the gardeners, with enough adventure to last the Green Teds for just a little while.
